Jeff,
I agree that the BWAA should be working with CBUSA and the CollegeBowling web to produce a meaningful poll. The BWAA is significant in that it gives teams that perhaps aren't able to participate in as many tournaments or Tier I events as other teams,( and therefore not receive as many points) but have had top finishes in the ones they have participated in, to be recognized for their performance.

There is something very wrong with the process, though when you get, for an example,
West Texas A&M ranked 62nd in the Team Power Rankings, and 19th in the last BWAA poll. What was the BWAA looking at, or did they just go on previous season's reputation? These discrepancies are what is making the BWAA Poll lose its validity.

Rankings change season to season. Teams work very hard at recruiting and improving their programs. Lets hope the BWAA will look at each season individually, and give every team the recognition for their current season performance, not past performances.
